Full description
Your guide will pick you up from your hotel between 8 and 8:30 AM. First, visit Dolmabahce Palace, the last residence of the Ottoman sultans. Famous for its great collection of European antiquity, furniture, and 4.5-ton chandelier, the palace has 285 rooms and 46 halls. After the palace, you'll take a tour of Bezmi Alem Mosque. 

After a short lunch break at a local restaurant, you'll drive by Golden Horn shores to see the old city walls, which date back to the Byzantine era. Then, take a short cable car ride up Pierre Loti Hill, where you can enjoy magnificent views of the city. Finally, hop on a 2-hour cruise to see the impressive sights along the Bosphorus' shores, including the Dolmabahce Palace, Ciragan Palace, Maiden´s Tower, Bosphorus bridges, Rumeli and Anadolu fortresses, and Ottoman residences.

Your guide will drop you off at your hotel around 17:00.
